French businessman Emmanuel Besnier has a net worth of $8.04 billion as of December 2017, according to Bloomberg. He is known as the “French Howard Hughes;” “the Emperor of Cheese,” and “the invisible billionaire” because of his disdain for the press. He currently serves as the CEO of Lactalis the family’s dairy company, which is based in Laval, his ancestral hometown in western France. He and his brother, Jean-Michael, and sister, Marie, inherited the company from their father, Michael, and they own 3% of the publicly-traded firm through a holding company. It is currently the biggest dairy producer in Europe and it continues to expand internationally.
